Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Magnificent Macadamia Nut Pumpkin Bread With Chocolate Chips

Healthy Recipes- Sweet Breads – Pumpkin Bread

Wholegrain pumpkin bread is a WONDERFUL healthy baked treat that makes a quick healthy breakfast   and/or a great food choice to put in your children’s lunch box. (Just store this delicious bread in the freezer and take a piece out the day you want to eat it.)

There are so many healthy pumpkin treats you can make if you buy a Costco size can of pumpkin puree including pumpkin muffins,   pumpkin cookies, pumpkin brownies, pumpkin pie and even pumpkin ice cream.  Pumpkins are LOW in calories (only 15 calories per 1/2 cup) and loaded with nutrients that are so good for your body.

The GREAT NEWS in the “Wonderful World Of Pumpkin Baking” is It Reduces the Need for Extra Fat!  There is only 1 tablespoon of oil in this whole recipe! I have also made this  same recipe with no oil and added a tablespoon more pumpkin puree.  Read More→

Gluten Free Chocolate Scone Recipe

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Gluten Free Chocolate Scone Recipe

Healthy Breakfast- Healthy Desserts -Gluten Free Baking – Dairy Free Baking- Chocolate Scones

My little boy Max  is now 4 years old and he just LOVES to bake healthy treats with his mommy.

We talk about what we are putting into each  recipe, and he often makes suggestions to “add more cinnamon,” or “another egg.” We make a mess, have a lot of fun, and together we experiment making new recipes.

The other day, Max  came running down the stairs in the morning right after he woke up announcing that he wanted to bake chocolate scones for “Shoo Shoo,”…… who apparently was turning either 3…… or 5 …. , my son wasn’t exactly sure.

Apparently it was Shoo Shoo’s BIG DAY and he wanted to celebrate.

Although the news of Shoo Shoo’s birthday was a suprise to me,  I was delighted to bake a sweet treat for him and off we went to create our chocolate scone recipe together.

A Healthy 10 Grain Pancake Mix To The Rescue!

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on A Healthy 10 Grain Pancake Mix To The Rescue!

I love to cook, I love to bake, I love to play with electronic gadgets, I love to travel, I love to be spun around the dance floor, ………..and I love to go to spas that have candles and waterfalls EVERYWHERE! Yes…..I day dream…….ahhh.

As a mom with two kids under 3, spas, travel, spinning around dance floors and free flowing baking isn’t always in the cards. Sometimes it is difficult to just get dinner on the table PERIOD.
So I understand the realities of life and  totally appreciate that not everyone has a hobby of baking. Not to mention that all moms face “those times.” Those times we don’t have time to cook and bake, or those times when we are TOO tired to even think about it. This is when using healthy pancake mix is a perfect fit!
